Pedagogical Materials

Compiling materials and suggestions for educators in Yiddish Studies is a passion of mine.

Teach Great Jewish Books, a website of the Yiddish Book Center, offers resource kits aimed at instructors at the high school level. I have created several kits, which include cultural and literary materials curated around a theme, together with suggested questions and activities.
